later, guantanamo is not closed, even though that was an almost first day priority for president obama. he still says he would like to close guantanamo, just as george w. bush said he wanted to close guantanamo. we have congress to thank for the fact that it's still open. congress has blocked the president's options for closing that offshore prison. but notice also that not a single new terrorism suspect, not a single new prisoner has been added to guantanamo since president obama has been in office. people have left by a number of different means, but nobody knew has shown up since barack obama was sworn in as president. we have not been shipping people to guantanamo, even though the president has not been able to close it. we have not been shipping terrorism suspects anywhere, really. mostly because we haven't been capturing them mostly. we've been doing something else. since 2002, targeted killings, targeted missile strikes have killed as many as 4700 people, mostly in pakistan. the highest targeted killing not by a drone, but by a navy s.e.a.l. team was of course the killing of osa

commander in chief, president barack obama. [applause] >> thank you. please be seated. in the years between the world wars, a young married couple in italy packed up what few belongings that they had and boardedx a boat for a new world. they pass under the statute of liberty, and went through the lines of ellis island. carmelo and carmelita panetta had no money and spoke little english. but they had a dream of a better life. they worked hard. they went west to california. they started a family and taught their sons that if they studied and worked, if they gave back to this country that they too could shell in a creek share in america pause, street today we pay tribute to their son, leon panetta, a man who has not simply lived up to the american dream, but has helped to protect it, for all of us. leon, our presence here today, members of congress, deputy secretary carter, general betsy, and members of the joint chiefs, service secretaries, and the men and women of the greatest military that the world has ever known, all this is a reflection of our personal appreciation to you and the gratitu
obama as well as national security affairs to president clinton. p.j., many thanks. >> pleasure, john. >> john: have a great evening. joining me via skype, one of the foremost critics of the not so secret drone program glenn greenwald, columnist are in the british newspaper the guardian and author of with liberty and justice for some, how the law is used to protect the powerful. what a pleasure to have you with us. >> thank you. thanks for having me. >> john: today was a pretty busy day. senator feinstein told the committee according to the information she has from the white house which she said the committee's trying to confirm civilian casualties from drone strikes are in single digits each year. what does your research tell you tell you about that? whatever the government labels the human targets be it terrorists evil combatants, aren't they all really civilians? >> i think you really hit on a key point in that question which is what the definition of a civilian. what we know is the government statistics are inherently unreliable. that's because, as "the new york times" reported ju
. we're so happy to have you here. >> thank you. >> is this rebranding effort going to work for the republican party? >> it might because it depends himself on what it is rebranding itself against as events unfold. so president obama has about 12 months here. >> don't you think in terms of who they are rebranding against, the competition, if you will, if we're talking marketplace term, the democrats thus far, for the most part the democrats kind of have it together in a way they historically have not. >> well, sort of. i mean, we still don't have a budget. we don't have a grand bargain in terms of social insurance reform and taxes beyond the top clinton rate. so i think to say the democrats are operating at a higher proficiency level at the moment politically that's true, how long that lasts is the question. and without -- it's interesting because their fates are linked. if the republicans don't play a partnership role as you were saying to find some common ground, then i think the whole system once again is going to become evermore dysfunctional in the eyes of the voters. >
honor. president obama, for his confidence and trust in me, i thank him. i'm humbled by the opportunity and the possibility he's given me to serve our country once again. and i fully recognize the immense responsibilities of the secretary of defense. i assured the president that if i am confirmed by the united states senate i will always do my best, i will always do my best for our nation and for the men and women and their families who are called on to make the enormous sacrifices of military service. their safety, success and welfare will always be at the forefront of the decisions i make. i also assured the president that i would always provide him with my most honest and informed advice. i make that same commitment to this committee and to the congress. if confirmed i will reach out to the members of this committee for advice and collaboration. it will be a partnership, because the national security challenges america faces require it. our nation's security is the highest priority of our leaders and our government. we cannot allow the work of confronting the great threats we face to
that pushes a lot of people away even though we might share some ideas with that party. guest: thanks for the call. i think that is overstated in terms of what the caller said. but i think there's a point to it. i found the talk about president obama's birth certificate, where he was born, whether he was christian or muslim, i thought that was obnoxious and wrong on the merits and politically very damaging. i wrote a piece in the wall street journal a couple years ago taking on donald trump because he was doing footsy with the birth certificate. when republicans begin to play footsie with this kind if conspiracy. and things like that, it's problematic. more broadly, i do think there's a problem, and undeniable problem. even whether a person thinks there's merit, there is a problem republicans are not free to middle-class voters and is sending a signal to hispanic people, the single largest demographic in the country, that you are not particularly welcome in this party. what the republican party has to do is find a way to appeal to them that is consistent with its principles but is als

confirmation hearing was going to die on. >> given that barack obama was a big supporter of the nuclear disarmament, that was a key issues for him. thank you for bringing your wisdom from the hagel hearings to us tonight. >> thank you, system i'm still trying to recover. >>> the economic policy you don't know, coming up. and reimagined nearly everything in it? gave it greater horsepower and class-leading 38 mpg highway... advanced headlights... and zero gravity seats? yeah, that would be cool. introducing the completely reimagined nissan altima. it's our most innovative altima ever. nissan. innovation that excites. now get a $199-per-month lease on the 2013 nissan altima. ♪ ♪ ooh baby, can i do for you today? ♪ [ female announcer ] need help keeping your digestive balance? align can help. only align has bifantis, a patented probiotic that naturally helps maintain your digestive balance. try align to help retain a balanced digestive system. try the #1 gastroenterologist recommended probiotic. align. email marketing from constant contact reaches people in a place they're checking ev
was -- the passengers were safe, but it was certainly no thanks to the obama administration or mr. brennan. back to the article. patrick says, following this stunning and nearly fatal intelligence failure, which prompted members of both the house and senate intelligence oversight committees to call for his resignation, brennan lashed out at the obama administration's critics. in "usa today" editorial, he claimed that the quote, politically motivated criticism and unfounded fear mongering only served the goals of al qaeda. unquote. let me insert here, if he he thinks mr. brennan thinks that questioning failures of the obama administration is contributing to al qaeda, what must bombing innocent people with drones be doing for al qaeda? back to the article, says brennan also defended treating omar farooq as a criminal by having his rights read to him upon arrest and trying him in civilian court rather than transferring the would-be bomber to military custody as an enemy combatant. just days later brennan gave a speech to islamic law students in new york university where he was introduced by the pre
. >> thank you. which is why i don't think obama will have any problem with this. >> i think it helps him. >> he'll look like a strong, and just like he did a year ago, just like when he killed bin laden, he looks incredibly strong on foreign policy. and this will not provide a weak spot for him in the long run. >> mika, really quickly, i agree with you there. i don't think there's going to be a political fallout from it. >> yeah. >> i think one of the things that disturbs me so much is the fact that americans are not any more concerned about other americans being able to be targeted and killed without any due process. and i'll say it again because i can hear people saying, well, why didn't you say that about george w. bush? i did. i did on padilla. i did when there were americans whose constitutional rights were being eviscerated by what was going on during the bush era. i spoke out then. i'm speaking out now. but i'm frightened that more americans are not focused on this. >> so i also think what's fair is your frustration, if you have any, about the hypocrisy in terms of the reaction on
it inside the administration. this is president obama's show and a she has been a spokesman an implementer of that policy. jon: paul gigot, from "the wall street journal". >> thanks, jon. jon: he will look at the week's top stories the "journal editorial report" airs tomorrow at 2:00 are eastern on the fox news channel. jenna: a massive deadly pileup yesterday on a michigan freeway. harris faulkner has the latest from the breaking news desk. >> reporter: the pictures from yesterday are simply eye-popping, a chain-reaction crash that left cars twisted and slipped more than a mile along interstate 75. this is detroit. we're learning more about what drivers were doing to try to stay alive during this. many slamming on their brakes. others swerving to avoid all the cars that were immediately piling up. that navy saved some lives we're told. still, three people died. among them children, a 7-year-old boy, a 9-year-old girl, believed to be siblings. their parents injured along with some 13 other people you see in all of this. the initial problem, a big-rig driver was stopped in his lane right ab
. >> host: >> guest: thanks. i'll say a couple things about that. i do think president obama has used rhetoric, which is outside the bounds of the rhetoric normally referring to republicans of slander of society, putting party ahead of country, wanting autistic in down syndrome children, not supporting medical research, not supporting programs of younger children and goes on and on and away they and on with this unusual and unfortunate for a president to do. i do think demonization in the presidential is like anything we've seen in a long time. secondly, there's just no doubt about that. it is more supportive of president obama in the democratic party message now has to spend any time i could recall. i think as a general matter the republicans have to accept the media by and large his liberal. you have to accept the make your way through it. i do think the 60 minutes interview with president upon a couple weeks ago was brilliant take it. if you compare how 60 minutes interviews president obama and president of bush's are hostile to republicans and conservatives. having settled that, r
. >> i probably will too. thanks for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago at this time when president obama was just starting his first term, news networks, including this one, made a somewhat unusual decision to show live on tv the arrival of one of the new cabinet secretaries at the department that she had just been appointed to lead. to broadcast live essentially a cabinet secretary's first day on the job. the reception that that cabinet secretary got that day was raucous. [ applause ] [ cheering ] a cabinet secretary starting work, right? it's not your typical multiple network life news event. but hillary clinton was never just some cabinet secretary, right? well, today, four years later at the start of the second term of the obama administration it was a similar scene for hillary clinton as she said goodbye to the same state department employees from almost the same spot where they welcomed her four years ago. >> now it's my great honor to introduce one last time the 67th secretary of state of the united states of america, hillary rodham clinton.

"the weekly standard" focusing on the debt, the deficit, and its impact on the children. the president speaking about these issues in his weekly address. here is more. [video clip] >> we all agree it is critical to cut unnecessary spending. we cannot cut our way to prosperity. it has not worked in the past, and it will not work today. it should -- it could slow down the recovery. it could cost us jobs. much as number in the future. let's make the investments we cannot afford to live without. embarrassment's and education and infrastructure. research and development -- investments and education and infrastructure. already republicans and democrats of work together to reduce deficits by $2.50 trillion. that is a good start. to get the rest of the way, we need a balanced set of reforms. for example, we need to lower the cost of health ca
uncertainty as to what is ahead, that is disaster. >> thank you. the president has said that iran's leaders should understand that president obama does not have a policy of containment area did he has a policy to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. he is make clear he will not hesitate using force when it is necessary to defend the united states interests. do you agree with president obama's position that all options should be on the table to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon? >> i do and i strongly agree with it. >> president obama has said the sanctions put in place cripple the economy of iran. oil productions plunged. the economy is in a shambles. do you share the president views on the importance and effectiveness of sanctions against iran and if so, how do you reconcile your position with some of your past statements that suggest that the national security in the united states is not served by isolating iran >> i always have agreed with multilateral sanctions because i think this president in particular has done more than any president to effectively employing thos

recognizes the gentleman from california. mr. takano: thank you, madam chair. madam chair, i'd like to call this the don't shift blame amendment. the bill before us today tries to blame president obama for all our fiscal woes. judging by the language of this legislation, i'm convinced that house republicans live in a world where our entire national debt suddenly appeared on january 21, 2009. but let's be clear. our debt was not created by the president alone, and while the president may be responsible for sending us a budget blueprint, it is ultimately congress that holds the power of the purse. i think my colleagues on the other side of the aisle are forgetting a key part of our job. the president does not pass budget, nor does he appropriate funds. congress does. my amendment makes a simple change to the finding section of the bill that clarifies that congress has the constitutional responsibility to fund the federal government. now, i can guarantee that when the majority introduces its budget this month it will be so extreme that it has no chance of passing both houses. the republican ma
will take questions for today. let's go down in front. katherine. >> governor, thank you for taking my question. john street, cns news.com. the catholic bishops have declared that the obama mandate on contraception and abortion drugs is unjust and illegal. and is a violation of religious liberty that they will not okay. do you agree with the bishops that the mandate is a violation of religious liberty under the first amendment, and if so, will you also not comply with it? >> i do agree with the bishops. again, i think it's inherent in the founding of our country, religious liberty. and again as the state of utah which again has its own history of persecution and people trying to deny their religious liberty, it really is something that we're concerned that in utah. so people ought not have to use taxpayers money to buy something i think is a very moral, repugnant thing to do. so we will support the position of the bishops. >> thank you. is very quick i wanted to thank you for the leadership of shown. it's taken incredible political courage to be which are doing the edges to step back,
